When a vacationing couple in Tangiers run into an old friend there, they discover that he is searching for his missing girlfriend who has been kidnapped by an international gang of white slavers. Nader investigates but before he can come up with anything, his friend is murdered. Meanwhile, nightclub magician Price and his mentalist partner continue their nefarious activities--they hypnotize and kidnap young women for the white slavers, and spirit them to the "House of 1000 Dolls." Written by
Fairly underwhelming Spanish/West German potboiler
In Morocco, a magician couple make young women disappear in their stage act, where they are drugged and passed onto criminals who operate in the sex trade.
Despite the title and the fact that this one stars Vincent Price, it comes as a bit of a surprise to discover that The House of 1000 Dolls is not actually a horror movie. There are some good things about it but overall it's a bit sluggish and unexciting. One good aspect is the house of the title. It's filled with a harem of beautiful women and the dolls themselves are an interesting detail, while the North African setting does lend proceedings some welcome exotic detail. But nice as these aspects are, overall it's a bit of a lethargic production. Price himself provides some class but even he can't do very much in what is not an especially great role for him. In fairness, it's a reasonable enough time-waster and it is a bit of an obscurity, so for Eurocult fans it is worth at least catching. But you'd be advised to not expect too much from it though.
